I am an avid listener of different types of podcasts. I really dove headfirst into ufo/paranormal types of podcasts and listened to thousands of hours of content. I then started to broaden my horizons and looked for any other types of shows that may interest me. I found some good comedy and good how-to podcasts that i subscribe to now that i also throughly enjoy. I just like the podcasting platform and the whole idea behind what it is and what it can do for people. That is why I am trying my hand in this fun arena, it is for anyone and everyone and can be about anything you want. The fun part is you can just do it about nothing and people may just want to follow along and listen to your journey. When I say "do it about nothing" I don't mean that literally, but maybe I will try just making a podcast of me doing nothing but sitting looking at my microphone for 30 minutes and see how that goes. Each podcast picks a topic of interest to spend their time talking about. It may not be about anything you are interested in, but sometimes giving random things a chance we can find out some new and cool things to be interested in! I am still very green in this field and feel my product is weak and lack luster but I have dreams and goals of making it something way better than it is now. I know what I will eventually put out will be great and people will enjoy it but for now, I am still an infant in a budding new social outlet.
I stumbled upon this new podcast a couple of weeks ago. I had just submitted my podcasts to the ITunes directory and I was checking the search field to see if it was up. I found this other podcast, Attack of The Beards and I instantly subscribed. Attack of The Beards isn't aimed at me, other than what I assume as the hosts have beards, I am not really hardcore into gaming as these guys are, and that is what they mostly discuss. I have listened to the last 4 episodes and am hooked. I don't know why, but I am. They are guys like me, they make the same jokes, laugh at the same shit, and I get it. Yeah I don't "game" like these dudes but I find it interesting to listen to them. I mostly like when they go off topic and talk about other "geek" culture and stupid shit that I am into, beer and Star Wars. The quality isn't over the top, but as I am learning about recording techniques and equipment, it doesn't have to sound "perfect". I am trying to make a nice sounding, polished, podcast that is audible candy, these guys just sound like they are sitting around a table talking into a couple of microphones about what ever!!! This truly inspires me if anything, and that is what I take away from this podcast. I highly recommend giving this podcast a listen, or two. If you are into games you probably will be more engrossed than I was on that topic. I like to game a little bit but it is obvious I am Intellivison to there XBox 1! They are people like me regardless of what they are into. I feel like I could just randomly sit down with them at any time and have a good time talking about nothing. I have attacked links to their website, click on their show logo, or I have made it very easy for you to click below and find them on ITunes. I wish these fellas much luck and maybe when their beards grow a bit more we will cross paths somewhere in the country at a competition!!! Check them out-support your bearded brothers, subscribe, rate, and leave them a nice review!!!
